STORRS, Conn. – Lafayette fell at No. 4 Connecticut on Sunday afternoon, 4-0, as the Leopards took on their second ranked opponent of the season. The Maroon and White dropped to 2-3 with two losses coming at the hands of ranked opponents.

“Today we had our opportunities, and also our mistakes. Against a top level opponent, converting in those areas can make the difference in the game,” coach Jennifer Stone said. “This is all great experience though as we move forward into the season.”

Connecticut took advantage of an early penalty corner to open the scoring. Anne Jeute took the corner and received the ball back from Roisin Upton and fired a shot to the top corner to give the Huskies the lead, 1-0.

The Huskies double their advantage with three minutes left in the half. UConn’s Sophie Bowden found Chloe Hunnable at the far post to put the Huskies up, 2-0. The Huskies got on the board again early in the second half when Montana Fleming knocked the ball into the Leopards cage.

With the Huskies ahead, 3-0, Connecticut added to its lead with under four minutes remaining. Hunnable picked up a loose ball in Leopard territory and shot into the Lafayette goal to push the advantage to 4-0.

The Leopards were outshot by the Huskies 17-5 with Connecticut firing ten shots on target. UConn also held a 9-4 advantage in penalty corners.

Lafayette goalkeeper Jessica Deutsch made six saves in the loss, while Connecticut’s Sarah Mansfield earned the win with two saves.

The Leopards return to College Hill Friday night as they host Albany at 7 p.m.
